Myofascial Release (MFR)
Myo = muscle
Fascial = fascia
Release = letting go
Underneath your skin lies a vast interconnected web of a white, sticky substance called fascia. It runs
from the tippy top of your head all the way to your toes. It connects everything in the body. Fascia is
what holds all the organs in place inside your body, and it’s what encases each muscle and muscle fiber.
Working with the fascial system is working with the entire body in 3 dimensions. Movement habits,
repetitive stress, daily activities, trauma and surgery all contribute to the development of fascial holding
patterns (adhesions), and can lead to pain and dysfunction in the body.
MFR is uniquely suited to resetting the body and reversing pain and dysfunction patterns. MFR uses
localized stretching techniques and varying amounts of pressure ranging from feather light to more
intense and deeper aimed at releasing adhesions throughout the body. Each individual body dictates
what needs to be addressed, and how much pressure and time the area needs to release. Often, very
light pressure is used and yields truly profound changes in the body. Every session is customized to
meet the needs of the body on the day of the session. The amazing part is…once an adhesion is
released, it stays released.
